The man who emptied a bottle of water over the head of Baidu CEO Robin Li at the Baidu Create conference on Wednesday has been punished with a 5-day administrative detention for creating a public disturbance, according to a report by The Paper.

Baidu held its annual developers conference on Wednesday to unveil their latest developments in artificial intelligence (AI). CEO Robin Li was delivering a speech at the conference when the unnamed man walked onto the stage and poured a bottle of water over Li's head.

Li asked the man in English, "What's your problem?", before the man was led away by security guards and handed over to local police.

Baidu condemned the man's behavior in a statement on its official Sina Weibo account. It also said that, although all kinds of unexpected events can happen on their path towards the development of AI, they won't divert from their course and will keep moving forward.
